Lyric toasts Belfast City
2013 marks 400 years since Belfast was founded and to mark the anniversary, the Lyric Theatre is producing a season of plays that captures the spirit of the city. There could be no better quartet of writers to document the city's evolution than St John Ervine, Graham Reid, Marie Jones and David Ireland, each with their own voice and perspective on Belfast past and present. The four plays chosen for the Lyric’s Tales of the City season have characters and stories firmly rooted in Belfast but the themes are universal. At the heart of each play is a family story that resonates with audiences both at home and further afield.
